FEB 24, 13 .. CYCLONE THANE .. PONDICHERRY .. LAST DEC 30th 2011

I want to go back to December 30th, 2011 when Pondicherry experienced a major weather event!  Nineteen days after Cyclone Thane (Thane is pronounced as Taah - nee) hit 'Pondi' I was here and shot the below photos.  They are somber evidence of the power of nature!  I wanted to re-post them since they do show some of the damage Thane infliced on 'Pondi' a year ago!  Cyclone Thane was a really bad storm!  42 people lost their lives in the storm.  This humble post is just my way of remembering those who died and expressing my feelings of love for 'Pondi'!

    You may have to look closely to see the mess that exists .. so many trees were still down ..

In the lower foreground .. note the iron railing bent out from two falling trees and their remains (baren stumps) after they were cut away and removed ..
Mute evidence of 'Mother Nature's' awesome power!
More evidence of 'Mother Nature' and her power ..
Can you imagine what 'Pondi' must have looked like Nineteen (19) days ago .. I have heard that MANY of the estimated forty two (42) people who were killed .. were killed by falling trees .. 
Words are beginning to fail me ..
More downed trees and the remains (on the far left of the below photo) of yet another ..
More 'mute evidence' to the damage ..
Work crews were still out working with determination and with passion .. nineteen (19) days after the storm hit .. the back-hoe was NOT stopping for one second .. 
The clean-up of a real mess ..
The below photo was right downtown in the business section .. where there are but few trees .. locals are calling Cyclone Thane a 'Hurricane' .. winds to 135 km/hour .. 
One last photo ..  and then I had to put-my-camera-away .. trees were not the only objects that felt the enormous destructive force of Cyclone Thane on December 30, 2011 .. in Pondicherry in Tamil Nadu .. here in Southeast India on the Bay of Bengal ..

Now .. a year later .. little evidence remains of the above damage .. but local people have not forgotten Cyclone Thane!
